Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Leaning planks as a styling trend?

While downloading the photos of the last post from Janne Peters' portfolio, I found these pics, and couldn't resist showing them here too! That thing with leaning planks or boards against the wall seems to be a big styling trend right now, and I think it looks great. What do you think? Have we seen enough of this already, or do you still like it?

    Oh no, too much like my own house actually: always some parts of a wall or book case taken down or waiting to be put up. BUT - a fun styling accent, I'm sure ;-)

    Beware of trends. The essence of style is suitability. Always.

    on these shots it looks a bit like cool lining for the clothes, not to direct or overwhelming, toned and elegant

    Loving this blog. I like the previous suggestion by Desiree of leaning frames against a wall. I stored some planks of wood at home for a while but it didn't look right somehow as a design feature. More like....storing some planks.

    I'm sorry but I'm really not a fan of the leaning planks - to me it just looks like building work is going on in the house and they are there temporarily. Maybe with a large minimalistic space it may look OK - but not really for me I'm afraid!

    I have a plank leaning on the wall of the vestibule, waiting for me to install the hairpin legs I got to make a bench with it. I'm just procrastinating completing the bench but now I can say I'm trendy :)

    I LOVE it, it gives the home a kind of rough feeling. And I like the fact that the planks are exchangeable as you get tired of a certain wood or color! Thanks for a great blog /Kajsa

    leaning planks...that is such a great trend! If it can be used for anything for furniture why not use it as a decor?

    These leaning planks seem to be replacing the leaning ladder-trend!
